When setting a grid or arc I do not get the display showing me what my coordinates are on the artboard. Can't seem to find the preference that addresses the issue.
I'm using Ai CS6 from the Creative Cloud on a Mac. OS 10.8.2
No, it's not the smart guides. When you drag a grid or arc tool you are supposed to get a small hud that pops up and updates the coordinates and tells you how big your grid is or where you are exactly in conjunction with other points. The same information is detailed in the top of the toolbar after you have let got of the mouse (or track pad) but it comes up a bit too late to tell you the info you need on the fly.
Thanks for the tip but still no luck getting HUD to come up. I went to photoshop and noticed that it is working in the select tool there but I get no Head Up Display in any of the tools in Ai. Bit of a mystery but hopefully I can solve it soon.
